Is there a bad time to start your business?
Take a serious look at your life. What are some things that could get in your way of starting a business? Do you have the money and the time it takes to get started? Can you handle the work and stress of running your own business?
When is the wrong time to start a business
Be honest with yourself. Starting your own business is a great way to invest in yourself and make more money, but if you don't have the time or you can't handle the stress, now might not be a good time to start. 

Are you just about to get married? Did you just have your first kid? Do you have financial obligations that you can barely keep up with and you're already working 80 hours a week? “Another less-than-ideal time to start a business is if you’re in the midst of getting out of a bad situation, like a job you hate”, says Ivana Taylor, founder of DIYMarketers.
“You can only commit as a small-business owner if you are drawn toward entrepreneurship, not as an excuse to run away from something.” Tweet this quote by Susan Payton, President of Egg Marketing & Communications.
If you believe that now is as good a time as any to get started, here a few tips to increase your chance of success.
Tips for starting your business successfully
1. Treat it like a business. It seems like being an “entrepreneur” these days is treated more like a popularity contest or an ego boost. If you want to run a successful business, you need to treat it like a business. Building a business can be a lot of hard work, long hours, and stressful days.

2. Don’t expect overnight success. Yes, some businesses have gone from launch to huge success virtually overnight. But if you want to succeed long-term, you must start your new business knowing it could take months or even years to get your business off the ground. Start by making a business plan with realistic goals so you can track your progress and adjust growth strategies when necessary.

3. Set realistic expectations. Starting a business takes time. Sometimes businesses fail. The best thing you can do to keep your sights on success is to set weekly, monthly, and yearly goals. It’s better to have goals that make you stretch a little than it is to have goals that are far out of reach. When you’re setting your goals make sure they’re Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, & Timely (S.M.A.R.T Goal Setting)
